Tribute & Message From The Family


Henry "Scoot" Lewis Spaulding, 80, departed this life on December 23, 2018 after succumbing to prostate, bone cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Henry was born on May 28, 1938 in Whiteville, NC to Lewis and Crettie Lee Spaulding.

Henry "Scoot" moved to New Jersey in his early 20's. He was employed as a heavy equipment and crane operator for over 30 years and worked for several construction companies to include: Thomas Brodesser, Foundation and Structures, and Balfour Beatty Construction. Henry built many of the jetties and bulkheads along the Jersey shore as well as helping to construct the North Wildwood Bridge.

In addition to being a crane operator, Henry "Scoot" enjoyed gardening, mowing his lawn and blowing the leaves that accumulated in his yard. Prior to his illness, Henry took great pride in maintaining a beautiful lawn that some say looked like indoor/outdoor carpeting. Most days Henry could be found outdoors tending to his garden, flowers and lawn.

Henry was predeceased in death by his son Brady of Cape May Court House, NJ and his brothers Thurston, Lester and Clinton of North Carolina.

Henry is survived by his wife of 58 years Dolores Spaulding of Cape May Court House, NJ, daughters Robin Smith (Doug) of Wake Forest, NC and Renee Thomas (Joseph) of West Lafayette, IN; grandson Tyler Spaulding of Millville, NJ; granddaughter Lauren Thomas of West Lafayette, IN; great granddaughter Faythe Spaulding of Millville, NJ. He is also survived by his brothers Wade (Ernestine), Albe, Ellis (Kaye), and Darrell (Marilyn), his sisters Sandra Spaulding-Hughes (Herbert), Mildred Moore, and Carolyn Forte and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Funeral services will be Saturday, December 29, 2018 at Christ Gospel Church, 2209 Route 9 South, Whitesboro, NJ 08252. Viewing will be from 10 to 11 and service will follow at 11 a.m. Interment is private.
